Eley Kishimoto Flash Pattern Sneakers

Started in the early 90’s, Eley Kishimoto is the duo of Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto, a couple of really creative fashion designers who’ve worked with some of the biggest names out there. They also created a fantastic little print called Flash, which adorns the shoes you see above. Their form is based after Chuck Taylor’s giving them a classic look but the all over Flash print makes these totally unique without being over the top.

They’re available at A.P.C.’s online shop for $140 BUT the whole site is in Japanese and I doubt they’d ship outside of Japan. I wonder if the store here in LA has these? Also be sure to check out Eley Kishimoto’s blog which even features some photos of Sebastian Tellier playing live.
